    Background: Angry followers of various Orthodox Organization and fanatical Orthodox organized a demonstration in protest against Athens and All Greece's Archbishopric and the Ministry of Education and Religion decisions vis-a-vis the Orthodox Clergy. The Organizations demand complete cleaning from "gold-mongers" bishops of the Church of Greece, and justice and respect to lower classes of the Orthodox Clergy, for now all the Church wealth go to Greek prelates while simple priests and archimandrites suffer economically. They also protest against Bishops holding "best places" and refusing to code them to others -- youngers. Naturally these demonstrations and fights between Orthodox clergymen created bad repercutions over the crowds.
